Description: Bulletin presenting a study of data from various wind-tunnel tests of horizontal tail surfaces to determine the accuracy with which section data can be used to estimate the hinge-moment characteristics of control surfaces of finite span. The study consisted of a comparison between the variations of elevator hinge moments with elevator deflection and with airplane pitching moment, as estimated from data obtained in two-dimensional flow, and that variation measured experimentally on 16 different horizontal tails mounted on wind-tunnel models of complete airplanes.
